‘Driving Accelerating Results through Self-leadership’

Leadership is the process of influencing others in a manner that enhances their contribution to the realization of group goals. Effective Leadership is a function of the Leader’s Style, Followers’ Motivation and Skills, and the Business Environment. This requires self-awareness, self-learning, and self-regulation, in short, self-leadership.

Everyone can be a self-leader, taking ownership and responsibility for achieving objectives, but often hit the roadblocks of ‘framing’ and ‘firefighting’. Andrew illustrates how to accelerate with self-leadership and achieve accelerated results by having the right conversations.

Participants leave inspired, with increased ownership, self-awareness, and a practical framework to improve their leadership conversations, and deliver results.

The Audience will Learn

  • Self-leadership means accepting responsibility for your results. You don’t blame other people and you don’t make excuses. This can be challenging during times of uncertainty and rapid change; however, a self-leader sees options and grasps opportunities when others are waiting to be rescued.
  • We are born into a frame of mind that is reinforced by our early experiences, and education. Unless we become aware of these frames of mind and take ownership, we will be destined to firefighting one issue after another until we are exhausted.
  • You can’t lead others unless you first lead yourself. As you increase your self-awareness and embrace self-learning and self-regulation you will get results.
  • There is a formula, and that formula is that Clear Expectations X Mindset & Motivation X Right Behaviors = Accelerated Results.
  • Leadership is a conversation, a one-to-one conversation, and a one-to-many conversation, you can improve your conversation by practicing the important ones.

The speech ends with an inspiring call to action.
